As an artist, I am constantly exploring the shift in narrative that we experience as we cross between different ‘spaces’: whether it is our country, our culture, or bodies, our sense of identity, or ourselves. The shift in perspective as we transition from one to another can be captured through these meditative drawings that address the complexity, fluidity, fearlessness and protectiveness that arise as we address the most pressing issues of our time.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Nilou Moochhala is a Boston/Cambridge-based visual artist who investigates issues of cross-cultural change and transformation – the ‘in-between’ – by juxtaposing found objects, memorabilia, imagery, and use of language to create social and political narratives. She has exhibited widely across galleries in the Northeast; in contrast her public art projects have involved street typography, forest fabric installations, and wheat-paste murals. Nilou is an award recipient of MCC and NEFA grants, and her work has appeared in The Boston Globe, WBUR, Radio Boston, & Artscope, among others.
